UPCOMING REALCOMM WEBINARS

COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE & Technology – The Importance of Developing a STRATEGY - 9/19/2019

It wasn’t long ago that a Commercial Real Estate CIO was responsible only for functions such as networking, file and print servers, computer hardware, desktop applications and e-mail. Over the last 5+ years other responsibilities have entered the sphere of the CIO including marketing, operations (smart buildings), occupant experience and cybersecurity, to name a few. Additionally, emerging technologies such as AI, Machine Learning, Blockchain, AR/VR, autonomous, robotics and others are impacting their world as well as their clients. Never before has it been so important for a Real Estate CIO to develop a comprehensive digital strategy, encompassing all aspects of the organization. This webinar will focus on the importance of developing a comprehensive digital strategy.
